    Session Description

    In the absence of a federally-mandated cap and trade program, ten
northeast and mid-atlantic states have formed the Regional Greenhouse Gas
Initiative, Inc. (RGGI) to mitigate the effects of greenhouse gas emissions.
World Energy was selected by RGGI to auction 188 million tonnes of carbon
dioxide (CO(2)) allowances annually on a fee per auction basis. Mr. Alam will
provide an overview of RGGI's objectives and the role World Energy will play
leading up to the first auction on September 25, 2008. He will also discuss
how initiatives such as CA AB32 and the Western Climate Initiative may adopt
similar market-based mechanisms being implemented by RGGI.
    Earlier this month, RGGI issued a preliminary release of technical
materials for market participants interested in bidding in the first-in-the
nation auction of CO(2) allowances on September 25.
